Why Drain Cleaning is Important

May 25, 2016

It’s springtime and homeowners in Daytona Beach have been organizing their closets, vacuuming the carpets, and giving the home an intense scrub. But what about your drains? You can’t forget to clean out your drains!

You most likely have a liquid drain cleaning product for when the bathtub won’t drain or the sink is backing up, but sticking a band-aid on the issue often won’t make it go away. Plumbing problems that appear minor usually end up being big problems if they aren’t resolved correctly. Even if you think the problem is just a slow drain, you should have complete drain cleaning to make sure it doesn’t ruin the entire system and leave you with a huge (and expensive) problem. Keep in mind, no plumbing problem is ever too insignificant to need a drain cleaning.

There are several reasons why household drains get clogged. For kitchen drains, the most common reasons are going to be pieces of food and oils. Make sure you run your garbage disposal and avoid putting things like grease, vegetable peels, and coffee grounds down the drain because they will all make mayhem for your pipes and other plumbing components. For For your showers, tubs, and bathroom sinks, the typical reasons for drain clogs will be hair that has fallen out, soap scum, and foreign objects. (Is your kid missing some puzzle pieces or have you noticed that you are missing a necklace?) An annual drain cleaning by a local Daytona Beach expert will help keep these little issues from accumulating and resulting in a huge plumbing nightmare.

Your toilet can also end up clogged by the common issue of using an excessive amount of toilet paper, but also from depositing things like paper towels, band aids, medication, or flushable wipes into the septic system.

If the pipes become clogged, by food, floss, or anything else, it will possibly also affect the water pressure balance of your whole plumbing system. If you don’t rectify these issues quickly by calling for an expert in drain cleaning, it could leave you with cracked pipes. Or more serious, your pipes could completely burst leaving you without any water in your home.

Remember, what flows down can sometimes come up. Regrettably, you might know this already with prior experiences with a clogged toilet, but backing up can also happen in your home’s sinks. Have you ever been cleaning dishes after dinner and noticed the water wasn’t draining and that potato you put down there a couple minutes ago is now swimming around? A routine drain cleaning, or an emergency drain cleaning when you first notice the problem, can avoid these situations altogether and prevent your drains from becoming clogged and causing odor to back up into your home along with the water.
